Hello, fellow fidget spinner enthusiasts. Are you sick of how nobody appreciates the cool stunts and tricks you're always doing in the back of class? Does it make you hopping mad that you can't pair your fidget spinner to your phone over Bluetooth? Are you ready to challenge the worldwide leaderboards and see if you have what it takes?

Lucky for us, Indiegogo exists. A company called BlueSpin is about to launch a crowdfunding campaign for the "first Bluetooth fidget spinner." The BlueSpin Bluetooth Spinner connects to an app on your phone that gamifies the fidget spinner experience, allowing you to complete trick challenges, share your scores, and chat with your friends about how much you love fidget spinning.

The spinner includes touch sensitive buttons on each side, and an accelerometer to track motion. It can track your speed and number of spins (thanks, magnets), and tell you how cool you are whenever you manage to transfer the spinner from hand to hand, or balance it on a single finger. The tiny built-in battery is replaceable, and supposed to last for an entire year on a single charge.

Of course, the fidget spinner craze will likely be a distant memory by September 2017, which is BlueSpin's estimated ship date. But if you're willing to risk it, you can claim your own Bluetooth Spinner for $49 when the Indiegogo campaign launches in July.
